NDI® Distribution Made Easy.
BirdDog Central is a software platform set to redefine the way we think about driving content to TV screens. By teaming up Central with any NDI® source, including all BirdDog hardware capable of creating NDI® sources, you can now drive your NDI® streams to any BirdDog Studio NDI or Mini to decode NDI® back to SDI or HDMI.
Three clicks. Send anywhere.
It’s really that easy to get NDI® content onto your screens. Simply select your source, select your destination, and click apply. Now you are sending your NDI® content to a single BirdDog hardware decoder or any of your groups anywhere on the network.
5 Groups. The beauty is in the simplicity.
By grouping your BirdDog NDI® Decoders you can instantly drive content to multiple screens. Gang up 10, 20, or even hundreds of receivers and push the NDI® content to your group with just three clicks. With Central it’s so easy to create the groups, simply select any of the BirdDog receivers in your destination windows and assign to a group.
Any NDI® source. BirdDog plays nice.
Central will work with any full version NDI® source on your network, whether it is a feed from a live BirdDog PTZ Camera, a BirdDog Encoder, a file playing off a computer, or the output from an NDI® compatible switcher. Any of your NDI® sources will show up in Central and you can push that to your BirdDog Studio NDI or Mini and they’ll play nice and decode it back to baseband video for you.
Large video preview window. Easy monitoring.
With the large live video preview window you can easily monitor any NDI® source. Simply click the list button and select any NDI® stream on the network to bring that up in the Program Monitor window.
BirdDog compatible. Yeah it is.
Central is compatible with all BirdDog hardware generated NDI® sources including Studio NDI, Mini, and of course the ground-breaking PTZ Line. These will show up automatically in your source windows and you can then chose which destinations to send them to.
Touchscreen. Make your life easy.
Every second counts in the fast paced world of live production. By using a Windows 10 Pro enabled touchscreen tablet the show director has direct lines of communication to the camera operators at their fingertips.
